The Roadside Features Inventory Program (RFIP) is a corporate program for collecting, storing and reporting roadside features such as guardrails, culverts, signs, objects in clear zones, and other features from all WSDOT regions. This data is used for asset management, project and system design and overall system analysis.
Previously many individual business areas within WSDOT have collected similar information (i.e. utility poles, signs, guardrail, tree groupings, slope information...) independently of one another. This caused duplicate efforts and expense, which resulted in the data not being consistently stored in a corporate standard format that would allow shared use and maintenance of the data.
Because of the advancements in technology, GIS applications and the creation of the Roadside Features Inventory Program, WSDOT has combined this information and thus created a single source for data retrieval. The data is more accurate, the ability to analyze and maintain the data increases exponentially and it saves the agency time and money.
